Rating the school over all is difficult. If you want to rate them academically, I would lower the rating quite a bit to a 1 or maybe a 2. My daughter is in 3rd grade had to go over pronouns for 3 weeks because some kids didn't get it were as she and many others got them in the first few days. She hasn't worked yet on division, and we're in March. She isn't even done with multiplication. Spelling is a joke they get words that are more appropriate for 2nd maybe even 1st grade, and their homework work load is minimal (many kids don't even do that...but let's not punish all the kids because a handful don't have parent involvement). Having said that, they have qualities of support that are superior. My daughter for the first time is showing confidence in herself which is a good step. I also will add that reading is the only subject they excel at. They have reading groups that cater to a child's ability, so children not on the same level do not hold them back. I think they need to think about making all subjects the same way. I got it; no child left behind...but making all the kids work on the same level as the ones in need causes all children to be behind.

Mullan Trail Elementary lost my first grade child four times in the span of seven months. It wasn't like he tried to escape - the supposedly responsible adults in charge put him on a bus instead of helping him to his after school activities. As a result, a six year-old child was left to wander the streets alone.

I feel that every teacher there tries very hard to work with each child. They have different group levels for reading so that no one holds anyone back or vice-versa. They also are very good at keeping in contact with the parents whenever anything arises. They have an amazing staff and great programs available.

The preschool for children with disablilities is more of an exsaturated daycare than a school. They exsist only because the law requires them too. My son learned absolutely nothing the year he was there. When I removed him and placed him at North Star Child Dev. Made tremendous strides. The staff all the way up are unwilling to listen to suggestions. It is easier for them to just not try. The goal of the school should be to help every child learn the best that they can. It seems Mullen Trail only wants to teach those that would learn just as easily without professionals. Their program is substandard across the board. I have seen better schools in locations that recieve less federal funding.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
